Building a Complete Doctor Who DVD Collection – UK Based Online Retailers

Last month I posted 10 Tips for Building a Complete Doctor Who DVD Collection.  Since then I’ve become aware of a couple of UK based online retailers that provide free or low cost world-wide postage.  If you know of any others please add a comment.

Fishpond – In my first article I discussed the Australian based Fishpond retailer.  The link to the international Fishpond site is here. Fishpond offer free shipping anywhere in the world and currently have some exceptionally good bargains on Region 2 Classic Series Doctor Who. For less than $8.00 Australian you can buy such Fourth Doctor titles as The Sun Makers, The Brain of Morbius, The Seeds of Doom, Robot and Nightmare of Eden. The list of cheap titles goes on and on. As advised previously, please be mindful that Fishpond are particularly slow in their dispatch of DVDs. Easily anticipate at least a month for arrival.

Fishpond

Zavvi.com – This UK based retailer offers standard international delivery for 99p. Having never purchased from them I can’t attest to the quality of their service. The link for Zavvi is here. They’ve currently got a number of Classic Series Region 2 DVDs for £7.95.

  2. Yes … in building up my Who DVD collection, I found that prices in the USA were nearly ALWAYS higher – often double or triple the price of the same shows if purchased from Amazon UK. I actually saved enough money on just ONE show to BUY a brand new all-region DVD player from Amazon for about $50! Shipping to the USA from Amazon or Amazon partners is VERY affordable (ie, very inexpensive, something like $4) and Amazon UK lets you set up your account to have the prices billed in your cart show up in US dollars – so you know what the final cost is without needing a currency converter! After you prior article about buying Who DVDs in Australia I checked some of the prices and found that UK is better than those as well. Wonder if it is because Doctor Who is a British show?

    • I think that all of the Australian DVDs are more expensive than the ones from the UK, irrespective of where the show was made. We have some shockingly high prices in Australia. We pay at least 50% more for iTunes downloads than in the US and we’re prevented from accessing the cheaper US site.
